Author compliments high standard of ethics which has been practiced by the Journalists and highlights the decline seen during the commercial era, focused on market economy where media has to go by commercial viability and profi tability. This sometimes put pressure on the journalists to cover news and write what can excite the public. Often scandals, sensationalism, violence, vulgarity etc. get preference. Juicy stories, fi lm stars and other celebrities, crime and communal violence occupy more space than the achievements of honest people. Sacrifi ces of brave shoulders, good police offi cials and law enforcement persons and justice focused judiciary, excellence in teaching, public service and the like are not highlighted adequaely.
